Error Cannot Load Resource File sqresus.dll

I get this error while attempting to upgrade the Oracle 8.1.7.1 client with the patch for the 8.1.7.4 ODBC driver. Additional error text trapped via our MS code includes the following:
Error # 1:
Detailed Description: Specified driver could not be loaded due to system error 1114 (Oracle in OraHome81).
Source: Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers
Native Error: 160

We are attempting to upgrade the Oracle driver becuase we experience Oracle bug 1574000 (THREADS IN MULTITHREADED OCI APPLICATION FREQUENTLY HANG.) .

My Oracle Client Tool machine is Win NT 4, SP 6; Currently running the Administrator level installation of Oracle client tools 8.1.7.1, applied as a patch (Patch Number:  1711240) to the 8.1.7.0 Client tool versions.  Does anyone have any insight in to the cause of Oracle's failure to load its sqresus.dll, and to a method to fix this problem??

Look for other versions of sqresus.dll in your system (or maybe sqresus.*).  Were any Oracle products running when you applied the patch?  If so, maybe a new version of this dll is included in the patch, but the current version was was locked and could not be upgraded.  If so, you may need to set any/all Oracle services to manual startup, shutdown and reboot, then try installing the patch again.

Just for comparison, I checked the timestamp on our new 8.1.7 database server that has only 8.1.7.0.0 installed on it (and has never had another version or a second Oracle home).  The sqresus.dll file in our Oracle_home\bin directory has a timestamp of: May 11, 2001 7:01AM and a size of 60KB.

there are no other versions of the sqresus.dll file. Additional investigation finds:
1)attempting to create a system dsn causes an ODBC Administrator error: "The setup routines for the Oracle in OraHome81 ODBC driver could not be loaded due to system error code 182"
So far, I have been unsuccessful finding a reference to error code 182, either in MSDN or OTN

2)The sqresus.dll file can be removed from the orahome\bin directory, can be renamed, but can not be registered using regsvr32.

Could the problem be with whatever file is used to call the dll??
